editor for editing xml text nodes

We have xml documents which contain text imbedded as text content in 
some xml structures.

These documents need to be translated by human translators from English 
into, for example, Chinese.

We would like the translator to use an editor which shows him only the 
text content of the xml document, or gives him only editing access to 
the text content.

The translator should be unable to touch or modify the xml tags, so that 
it is guaranteed that the xml-tags are unchanged when the translator 
returns the translated document.

The translator simply replaces all English text accessible to him into 
Chinese text.

Does anyone know an xml editing tool which has this feature, of allowing 
only modification to the text node content?

I am working on exactly this right now. It leaves the elements in 
element content inviolable, but allows element markup in mixed content 
(the only thing a translator should be touching).

Please contact me by email to discuss this further.

The only translation tool I came across was the CITEC Translation Editor 
for SGML, which displayed the source in the top half of the screen and 
the target in the bottom half, but it did allow changes to the 
structure. It died before XML was born.
